The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Chattanooga Website

In order to recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Chattanooga business, we'll need to know what your goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all Chattanooga businesses.

To deliver amazing ecommerce website development services in Chattanooga, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce web designers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Chattanooga WooCommerce Web Development Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system in Chattanooga. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web designer in Chattanooga.

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing e-commerce businesses in Chattanooga get started with WooCommerce.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers tend to recommend WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Chattanooga web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce theme is a great starting point for Chattanooga WooCommerce web designs. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Chattanooga e-commerce clients.
  • If your Chattanooga business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. If you are happy with the look and feel of your content-based website, why invest the time and money into redesigning that website just to add ecommerce?
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Chattanooga web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. As an alternative, Shopify has expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • For Chattanooga businesses that need a product builder, we recommend WooCommerce. If you are using WordPress and WooCommerce, there are numerous product builder plugins to consider and we've got experience developing custom builders in WooCommerce. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Chattanooga websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

Chattanooga Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. To run an e-commerce website using Shopify you will likely be looking for a Shopify website designer in Chattanooga.

With our Shopify web development company, we can design a website for a new or existing business in Tennessee that runs on the Shopify platform.

Our ecommerce web developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Chattanooga merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Chattanooga without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Chattanooga web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. It is often more expensive to develop custom functionality within Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • The best e-commerce platform for Chattanooga businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. It's faster to test out a new product on a Shopify site and cycle through different apps and ideas for conversion optimization.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

It might be time to rethink your Chattanooga ecommerce website if you're not happy with its performance, functionality, or conversion rate.

Every Chattanooga e-commerce redesign project deserves exceptional care. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Chattanooga ecommerce website developer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an e-commerce website redesign in Chattanooga. You should consider these factors when redesigning Chattanooga ecommerce sites:

  • Where can people find your Chattanooga e-commerce site? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Chattanooga website.
  • What do customers think of your Chattanooga website? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. Consider being more conservative with design changes if your conversion rates are already good.
  • Are you moving your e-commerce platform? It will work different than your old website, if that's the case. The way you enter products, fulfill orders, update customer information, and go through the checkout will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Chattanooga Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building an ecommerce website in Chattanooga can be expensive. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Chattanooga ecommerce web designer before you hire them. This will help keep you on track during the design of your e-commerce site, and set measurable goals for later. We've seen these goals for Chattanooga ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Chattanooga-based company.
  • To migrate an old Chattanooga ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • Redesigning an e-commerce site in order to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

It's great to be able to help you with your new ecommerce development in Tennessee! Let us help you put together a list of goals for your ecommerce website if your Chattanooga e-commerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your Chattanooga Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask your Chattanooga ecommerce web development firm a lot of questions. Even though the answer is important, how it's delivered is more important. Pay attention to whether the sales team is willing to answer detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the Chattanooga ecommerce web design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce website design questions a lot by Tennessee e-commerce businesses:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce development? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce web development services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. For Chattanooga ecommerce website development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Chattanooga WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Can you help Chattanooga business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz does help Chattanooga clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Chattanooga ecommerce web design services? WebCitz usually gets Chattanooga ecommerce development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Your Chattanooga ecommerce web developer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. Check out our ecommerce website development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Chattanooga Ecommerce Websites

If you want a new e-commerce website, you should expect Chattanooga ecommerce web design companies to have a formal process for how they do it. Here's how we make Chattanooga ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Chattanooga company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. By having everyone involved in the ecommerce project speak up, you'll minimize confusion and project delays.

Kickoff Conversation

If you're happy with our ecommerce development agency for your Chattanooga website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff call! This will be an opportunity for everyone involved in the project to have discussions about how the project will unfold, who will be responsible for each phase of the design, and anticipated turnaround times for each element of the project.

Design Mockups or Template Selection

If your future Chattanooga ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify, then the first phase of the project starts with mocking up your website. This helps everyone agree on the look and feel of your website before an e-commerce developer starts working on it. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your Chattanooga ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest phase of your Chattanooga ecommerce build will be the development process. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much more! Throughout the process, you'll be able to follow along via a password-protected development website.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

When the ecommerce website development project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Chattanooga e-commerce site! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been improving this Tennessee ecommerce web design process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout United States!

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours.
